The Nintendo 64 Rock Dock uses the original old-school gaming console to create an upcycled charger for new-school gadgets like sleek iPads, iPhones and iPods.

The Nintendo console is for iPads; it also allows you to plug in your headphones or speakers while you're charging your gadget. You can get the matching gaming controller to charge your smaller devices like iPhones or iPods. The Nintendo 64 Rock Dock merges old-school and new-school gadgets beautifully.

Implications - In the technology industry, products become antiquated rather quickly, which can be incredibly frustrating to consumers who buy expensive products that become obsolete within six months. Businesses that find a way to give new purpose and functionality to old gadgets will capitalize on an accessories market that most other companies have left decades ago.
